The 3rd annual JULIE’S CLOTHES FOR KIDS event was a success!
This year, with the help of our amazing employees, community, partners, sponsors, and donors we were able to provide clothes and school supplies for 200 kids! We had over 250 volunteers that included YAG employees, sponsor and donor employees, Walmart employees, community leaders, neighbors, and friends that helped this event run smoothly and shop with the kids.
Our volunteers paired up with the kids to help them pick out shoes, socks, underwear, and clothing. The kids involved also received new backpacks filled with school supplies, toothbrushes, toothpaste, and coupons for meals at our sponsoring restaurants. The participants were selected by the Cassia and Minidoka County school districts because their families lack the resources to provide basic essentials to start school.
As always, we had great sponsors and donors that helped provide financial support that made this event possible.
Thank you to all who helped make this event such a great success. We are grateful for your support and generosity, and are already looking forward to next year’s event!
A HUGE thank you to Sue Pearson at Young Dodge in Burley and Tami Olsen our Young Caring For Our Young Director for putting together such an amazing event!
